New Editor for Medical Humanities

Dr Brandy Schillace: "I am passionate about the intersections of medicine and humanities."

Dr Schillace is Senior Research Associate and Public Engagement Fellow for the Dittrick Museum of Medical History, College of Arts and Sciences, at Case Western Reserve University, US. For ten years, she managed the medical anthropology journal, Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry, and edited its first medical humanities special issue. An accomplished medical humanities scholar, speaker and author, she continues to serve as chief editor of the medical humanities and review blog MedHum | DailyDose. In all her work, Dr Schillace seeks to uncover the human stories at the centre of science and medicine, says BMJ.

Dr Schillace will take over as editor from Deborah Bowman from 1 July 2017.

Medical Humanities is an official journal of the Institute of Medical Ethics that reflects the whole field of medical humanities. It features articles on various aspects of the delivery of healthcare and the formulation of public health policy.

Dr Brandy Schillace says: "I am passionate about the intersections of medicine and humanities, and have always been impressed by the BMJ family of journals’ combination of clinical relevance and intellectual curiosity. I am excited to lead the journal and build on the accomplishments of the outgoing editor Deborah Bowman in this important and evolving area.”

Dr Wing May Kong, Chair of Trustees, IME, says: "The Institute of Medical Ethics is delighted to welcome Dr Brandy Schillace as the new Editor-in-Chief for Medical Humanities. We see medical humanities as an exciting and hugely important academic discipline and look forward to watching the journal continue to grow and flourish under Brandy's leadership whilst building on the excellent work done by her predecessor, Professor Deborah Bowman.”

Allison Lang, Publishing Director at BMJ, says: "We are delighted to appoint Dr Brandy Schillace, a well respected medical humanities scholar, who shares our vision for advancing the academic and international reputation of the journal, and increasing its relevance to healthcare professionals and others. Brandy also brings a wealth of media experience and we look forward to working with her to bring rich and stimulating content to the journal.”
